I suffered a bout of depression in 2014 which lasted a few months caused by issues at home. At the time i was on a 20mg dosage of Citalopram once a day which lasted until i started to feel better down the line, which i put down to the drug mainly it really did work wonders for me. I came off it properly as discussed with my GP who advised dropping to 1 tablet every other day for a month before stopping completely. All was well, i still felt great and was doing well after i stopped.
Within the month, i seemed to start to slowly regress again. I started to feel mentally exhausted, easily agitated and get angry over small things. I would feel dizzy at times too and fainted on one occasion which was unusual for me. It created huge problems in my personal life.
Fast forward to today, i have found my family were spiking my food with my meds which has led me to wonder if this was creating the issues i was having and whether it kept me in a state of withdrawal. I would visit them every other weekend mainly, so a 20mg dosage at least although it could have been more depending on how many tablets they used, spread 4 times over 2 days, this went on for months. Occasionally i was there more frequently than every other weekend too. I'm in a good place again mentally and have stopped all contact with them for a while now and intend to keep it that way.
Could the meds have been causing me to feel how i was?
Any advice would be appreciated!
